ceos, does the pessimism spell trouble for president obama and maybe the rest of us also? president obama and mitt romney meanwhile battling it out in the swing state of ohio. john harwood joins us now with all the details. good evening, john. >> good evening, larry. you know, in the wake of that 47% video last week, mitt romney's got a new message and that's to tell middle class people as well as the poor that he cares about them. he did it on the stump in ohio today, he also did it in an interview with our nbc colleague ron allen just a few minutes ago. here's mitt romney. >> i served as a pastor of a congregation with people of all different backgrounds and economic circumstances that i care very deeply about the american people and people of different socioeconomic circumstances. and i think throughout this campaign, as well, we've talked about my record in massachusetts. don't forget, i've got everybody in my state insured. >> and here's some numbers, larry, that show you why that is mitt romney's message rather than tax cuts. you can't compare in the state of ohio where a new
example is every day in "the washington post," whenever there is a picture printed of barack obama or mitt romney, the picture of barack obama always has that beautiful barack obama smile on it. it's the best picture they could find of barack. and then right below it, there will be a picture of mitt romney with a sneer and he's very angry, like he's yelling at a crowd. but when, in fact, there's thousands of pictures available of mitt romney with a beautiful smile on his face and really looking positive and happy. they refuse to print those pictures. for people who don't read but just look at pictures -- there's a lot of people like that. that's one thing that the mainstream media in print, in newspapers, the "new york times," "washington post," they do it all the time. they used to find every glowing picture possible of hillary clinton that they could find. host: all right, kevin, we're going to leave it there and move on to beverly in kearney, missouri, on our democrats line. good morning. caller: good morning, peter. host: how are you? caller: i'm fine. you look nice as usual. you know,

president obama. but mitt isn't having it, trying to get ohio voters to the right by focusing on the economy. >> with incomes going down, every year, every year going down, down, down. prices of electricity up and health insurance up and the cost of gasoline, having doubled, these are tough times. even for families with jobs. i know what it takes to get this economy going again. cheryl: so what would a tax plan under a romney/ryan administration look like? rich edson breaks it down for us. rich? >> reporter: well, cheryl, democrats call it a giveaway to the rich at the expense of the middle class. republicans say they're wrong, and this morning governor romney defended his tax plan. >> by the way, don't be expecting a huge cut in taxes because i'm also going to lower deductions and exemptions. by bringing rates down, we'll be able to let small businesses keep more of their money to hire more people. >> in the end the details are really up to congress. romney's proposed cutting every tax rate by 20%. to insure the treasury department takes in about the same amount of money under a new system,

reading on -- reads of the morning. president obama makes another trip to ohio. romney definitely needs to put ohio back in play. the president simile wants to put it away. >>> today romney is out with a straight-to-camera ad. the ad itself is a bit of an admission that the 478% comments have done serious damage and the attacks on his personal wealth are also sinking in. take a look at the ad. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class fami families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good-paying job. >> worth noting, that's his first candidate-to-camera ad. this morning the obama campaign have another ad out hitting on the 47% comment. this is what it looks like. >> when mitt romney dismissed 47% of americans for not pulling their weight, he attacked millions of hard-working people making $25,000, $35,000 a year $40,000 a year. romney paid just 14% last year on over $13 million in income
? joining me now is john avlon. listen to mrs. obama over the weekend. >> we cannot let anyone discourage us from casting our ballots. we cannot make anyone make it feel unwelcome in the voting booth. it's up to us to make sure that in every election, every voice is heard and every vote is counted. that means making sure our laws preserve that right. monitoring the polls to make sure every eligible voter can exercise that right. >> so john, so many new laws. so many different requirements now. poll workers are going to have a field day trying to figure out what it all means. is there the potential for chaos at the polls come november? >> is there the potential? absolutely. we're changing the rules. that leads to a degree of uncertainty. people who haven't had to show id befo i.d. before in certain states will have to do so. some folks may be afraid of that. we have a tortured history of voting rights in this country. laws strike an emotional button. we have instances in the past of voter fraud. the fact that this has happened in so many states in the last two years does strike many people as

've got to get rid of obama care and replace it with something that will work. [ cheers a applause ] so two very different paths. one is the path the president proposed which is the status quo. his is the path of -- well, he calls it forward. i call it forewarned. it's the same series of policies he's put in place over the last four years, and they have not worked. if you don't believe me, look at the price of gasoline and look at the jobs in your community and the members of your family struggling for good work. if you don't believe me, look at the numbers that just came out in the growth of our economy. 1.3% verses russia at 4%. china at 7% to 8%. we're at 1.3%. this is unacceptable. it is not working. i know what it takes to get us working. he's put us on a road to europe. europe doesn't work in europe. i want to get us back to being america where people come here, build enterprises here. we fulfill american dreams. we keep the hope alive in america.

president obama and republican nominee romney essentially in a dead heat. president obama winning by just 1 percentage point as the race enters its final weeks. senior fellow at the american enterprise institute is joining us now from washington, d.c. kevin good to see you. what is the one thing that mr. romney will do to try and push ahead with his economic agenda that he has not been doing and that needs to be doing in previous weeks? >> well, i think that the biggest thing coming up is that governor romney is going to have a chance to speak directly to the american people in the debates and to challenge president obama. you know, one of the untold stories of this campaign for example is that president obama has absolutely no plan to create jobs. that thing they were waving at the convention, his 4 trillion dollars plan was actually just his budget from last year which went -- which went to the floor of the house and senate and got no votes. that kind of conversation is not getting through because of the mainstream media bias. dagen: mr. romney can also speak for himself. he has been wide
the incumbent obama who is running as though the economy during his term didn't happen or at least if it happened, it was the fault of somebody who was president four years before him and what he wants to talk about is the economy he's going to create starting in january 13 which will consist of people having green jobs, making windmills and solar panels. i think the american voters are probably getting a little bit frustrated that no one will talk about the economy as it exists right now, dropping to 1.3% in the second quarter. the united states economy is barely, barely moving. now i think voters want to know what's going on. dagen: what's going on with mitt romney, he can't seem to put together a cohesive discussion about the state of the economy that is resonating with voters. you mentioned in the column that he was talking about trade cheaters and energy independence, which seem wholly removed from what is really happening right here right now on the ground for the american people. >> well, the ads that target china as a trade cheater are aimed at voters in northern ohio and a
,000. >> woodruff: president obama and governor mitt romney were slugging it out again today on the campaign trail, both of them in the battleground state of ohio. and both of them mindful of the need to turn out younger voters, who went overwhelmingly for mr. obama in 2008, but who are proving more elusive this year. i traveled to the columbus area this past weekend ahead of the candidates to find out just how elusive. >> fired up! ready to go! >> woodruff: ohio state university students about to head out from an obama campaign office to register voters, yell a familiar refrain. >> fired up! ready to go! >> woodruff: they are a coveted voting block for the president, in this fiercely contested swing state. four years ago, mr. obama won 18- to 29-year-olds nationwide by 66% to 32%. a margin so large, young people were credited with putting him over the top in several key states. >> are you registered to vote? >> woodruff: surveys suggest he's sure to capture the majority of the youngest voter block again. but after four years of watching the president grapple with the realities of governing, they'
's the issue with 2011 here? >> well, look, obama has said i'm going to tax rich people and implying he's not going to tax you. in fact, he passed tax increases on average income americans many many times during his presidency. there are 20 different taxes in obama care that we will all be paying. in addition to that, of course obama's new promise that he won't tax rich people, he's got a new term limit on it, 12 months. only next year, after that we could have a vat or other things. so if you are obama and you intend to allow the bush tax cuts to lapse, so there's a 500 billion dollars tax increase on low income people, middle income people, all americans, you want to talk about anything other than the tax increases that you have scheduled. i mean he's running up trillions of dollars of debt over the next deca decade, according to his budgets. the only way he pays for them since he's not cutting spending is to raise taxes on everyone. what do they want to do? oh gee what did romney pay in taxes four or five years ago? that has nothing to do with anything. we ought to be reducing taxes
assessed claims made by president obama and mitt romney as the campaign ahead of their first debate. they were from people with the fact, the washington post, and the -- politifact, "the washington post," and [unintelligible] this is one-and-a-half hours. >> good morning. my name is kathleen hall jamieson. i direct the annenberg public policy center at university of pennsylvania. welcome to our session -- this includes sessions trying to address the question, what is the role of journalism in a debunking deceptions and holding candidates accountable? to set the fringe for our discussion, we are releasing the results of a survey of adults, with a margin of error of 3.2%. we will offer as our conclusion that the public has a lot to learn about the 2012 presidential race. also, we will say that those who seek out fact checking on the internet, do no more. here are specifics. a sizable proportion of the public fails to understand the plan and records of major presidential candidates. when people watch debates, the level of knowledge improves. we expect in the second, third, and third wa
's actually related -- >> no, it's not. >> president obama leads romney by 10 percentage points in ohio. no republican has lost and then won the presidency. the president is up nine points in florida and has opened up a 12-point lead in pennsylvania. in the same poll, president obama leads mitt romney in his handling of the economy in all three states. 51% of polled voters say the president would do the better job. >> okay, let's go back to the last slide, guys. and mark halperin, let's talk to you. i know you agree with me that the media is liberal. guess what? republicans have somehow managed to win despite that media liberal bias. you've said it repeatedly on this show. so despite that fact, mitt romney is not getting crushed in all three of these states because of the liberal media bias. what's happening there, and why is he losing so badly, especially in ohio? >> well, it's very unlikely the president will win those states by those margins, but these numbers are not out of line dramatically with private polling and some other public polling. i think the biggest problem right now re

netanyahu is expected to address the general assembly today. president obama and republican challenger mitt romney each spent wednesday campaigning in the battleground state of ohio, a key prize in the battle to win the november election. both candidates appealed to voters by attacking the other's record on china, with romney saying he will stop the country from taking u.s. jobs. >> one of the nations that has cheated over the years has been china. they have artificially held down the value of their currency. by doing that, the prices of their products are artificially low. when the prices are low and compete with our manufacturers, our guys go out of business and lose jobs. one thing i will do from day one is labelled china a currency manipulator. they must not steal jobs in unfair ways. >> romley's comments come days after his tax returns showed his trust has invested in a chinese will company doing business with iran. president obama criticized his comments on china. >> he said he is going to take the fight to the chinese. he will go after these cheaters. i have got to admit, that messag
the value of their investments since president obama took office? we look at the latest survey, which we'll talk about more later in the program. 34% of americans say their investments are better off than they were four years ago. just 29% said that they were worse with 28% about the same. the facts are the s&p 500 has skyrocketed over 70% in that time, of course, due to the central bank stimulus action. so what's the disconnect? joining us with answers so that and more is the pimco ceo. good to see you. thanks for joining us. >> thank you, maria. >> let me get your take with what's going on in spain right now. we've been looking at these pictures of protesting. it certainly feels like things are worsening there in terms of the unrest and certainly the economic challenges. what's your take on the latest? >> it's an indication of how difficult it is to go from designing a response to implementing it. one of the problems you have in europe is that parts of the populations are just fed up. they've had enough. so you start getting rejection. it's most acute in greece where you've had economi
to president obama the paper which outlined, in his mind, the way ahead in afghanistan. we responded in a conference in february of 2012. it is called something else now, but it was held in munich. hillary clinton gave back our assessment. there is a great deal of space between our assessments. one of them is not just a americans not seeing eye to eye with afghanistan. it is our way of talking about it. the picture we draw of pakistan is when they say, what is your end game? we talk about a strong central government in afghanistan. we talk about education, an army, 200,000 to 300,000 people. we have experts say, who will win? who are you picking? the way we look at it is not positivistic social science. it is anthropological. it is geographical. it is historical. this person hated that person's visions of the military. the senior general in the pakistani military told me, you americans think of your army and how sergeant gonzales from los angeles and the corporal from chicago and the major from new jersey all come into the military. you are all put into the military and it is a unifo

say it, who president obama says he is not a friend of anyway. >> well it's true. what we see is the top 10 to 20% of households who do benefit a lot from stocks going up in the stimulus. they are still spending for two reasons. they get this benefit from the wealth effect but also people in there go to college and they tend to peak in their spending about five years after the average person. so the average person peaked in 2007. we think what is going to happen next year this stimulus will have less impact because these wealthier households will hit their peak in spending. their kids will get out of college and drop off and stimulus i think is going to work a bit, not as much as past qes. then it will fail by mid next year. i think stocks go up a bit. fourth quarter, maybe first quarter. then you could see a bigger crash. note that stocks keep going to higher highs and when they crash, this he go to lower lows. call it megaphone pattern. melissa: just making it is the durable goods order that came out to show durable goods fell 13.2% in august. that was the biggest drop since

. which candidate has the better energy plan in your view? >> well, obama has no energy plan. he talks about energy a little bit. he never has a plan. romney has a good plan, and i believe romney will carry it out. that all the people that have run for president since nixon, republican and democrat, have always said elect me and we'll be energy independent. romney has not said that. he has said with a north american alliance, that we can bring together mexico, canada, and the united states, and we can be energy independent using all of north america. but that's good because they're good neighbors. we work well together. all that can be accomplished, but romney is realistic about a plan. his plan is use our own resources. >> and we know that's a job creator. do you think he has a shot to win the election? >> oh, i think he will win the election. i think he has energy as a big component. there are 30 states in the united states now that produce energy. when i went in the energy business a long, long time ago, there was only nine states. there are 30 states now. so millions of jobs are cr
, thanks so much. president obama and mitt romney are getting ready for their first debate this wednesday. some conservatives say mitt romney needs a to do a better job selling his tax message which at times seems a little bit muddied. lou dobbs is here to weigh in. i think that was generous. >> very generous. by the way same can be said and should be said of president obama. what these two men are doing, in their economic policies, excuse me, is truly bizarre. they're both obfuscating a bit. to what end, one doesn't know. when you try to win election, seems to me, and i have only covered six presidents but i think it is better if you're clear and direct as you can be with the voter if you want them to vote for you. that is just my feeling. melissa: yeah. >> unless you've got a record a little like mr. obama where you don't need them to focus in quite so sharply on your record, maybe a little fuzz is good. when you were the guy coming at him, you better be sharp and focused and neither man is, i think entirely achieving his goals. melissa: the president, so much of his campaign focused on
the parties involved, how much our personal relationships between netanyahu, president obama, netanyahu, mitt romney, how much is that playing into what we'ree hearing about this and other issues? >> i don't think what the prime minister did yesterday had any, but i think people seem to discard the importance of personal relations. in a politics and international relations or even national affairs, not love affairs and not all about rumors. at the same time personal relations come and all you have to do to have this brought home to you is remember the very bad relations between president roosevelt in the second world war, a very great extent america's decision to enter the war, to help the united kingdom because of the disdain and distrust between those two leaders. i believe personal relationships to count and i hope whoever the next resident i is, relations between him and the prime minister of israel will be as they always were. warm, trustful, genuine and ones of great strategic alliance. connell: thank you very much for coming into the studio today. appreciate it. thanks. dagen: vast maj
